New 41st Ave B-Line to UBC

June 14, 2019

A 41st Avenue B-Line to UBC will be launching in January 2020 in order to provide shorter wait times and shorter travel times between UBC and Joyce – Collingwood Station along 41st Avenue.

This new service will result in 33% more capacity compared to existing services, and will run every 3-6 minutes during peak hours, which means 50% less waiting compared to the 43 bus route. There will also be frequent service at night, with a bus coming every 15 minutes until 1 AM.
